Wonderful series
1 March 2011 | by (Milan, Italy) – See all my reviews

I totally agree with the previous review. A funny and interesting series, with very good acting and, as usual for Acorn productions, a very good portray of the period. The only pity is that it is quite short all in all. I could have watched much more. Can't wait to see season 2. I particularly enjoyed the historical side of it. I had little knowledge on how the anglo-saxon law system evolved. I found I learnt something knew while enjoying the show. I have only one small concern on the veracity of Garrow's opponents, they all seem to be quite inept at law. I wonder if it is accurate and reflects the fact that they've never been challenged before or if it is mostly in the interest of the show.
